Brown County Courthouse

(KNZA)--It will cost more to dispose of trash at the Brown County landfill beginning May 1st.

The Brown County Commission approved a rate increase when they meet Monday.

Rates for in-county and out-of-county trash will each increase $1.70 a ton.

The new rate for in-county trash will be $56.20 a ton, while the new rate for out-of-county trash will be $60.60 a ton.

The new minimum charge will be $7.00

Rates for the disposal of construction and demolition materials will not be subject to the increase

Commissioners say the rate adjustment is necessary due to continued increases in operational costs.
